All new filters cleaned filter housings. every time it falls under 1300 rpm its flat as can be no power

have you verified the egr is not stuck open??

if you have a fuel pressure gauge, what is the fuel pressure at the fuel module test port??

at lower rpm, is the intake throttle valve open and not slamming shut??

do you have the DDDL program to monitor the fuel pressure??

throttle pedal voltage?? have you verified at the idle range??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
we have dddl and the throttle response is showing to be 100 percent when the pedal is activated. new throttle valve and it is working correctly. truck has had a dpf delete done but no performance issues after that.
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

100% when???

what about egr and fuel pressure??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I havent checked the fuel pressure and the egr valve seems to be working correctly. Throttle pedal works correctly thru the pedal travel
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
At 1300 rpm it takes off like a rocket plenty of power from there up to the top of the rpm range
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
sluggish response at 1300 and lower rpm is the only issue no codes
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
with plenty of pulling power above 1300 wouldnt that eliminate a fuel pressure issue?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

ok, maybe depending on the pressure at idle

also, what about the delta P sensor?? did you remove it and inspect for coolant on the sensor and the passages are clear to the cold pipe??

also, the voltage of the delta P??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I removed it and cleaned it but no change cleaned the passages too (common issue). i swaped it with another known good part reads 14.52
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

14.5?? really

it should only read between ,5 and 1 volt.

also, did you calibrate your used one prior to installation??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
no i didnt. let me plug back up and do that and get some accurate data
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
back to you in a few
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

make sure you calibrate it with it off the truck in ambient air

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
ok delta p is .31 at idle and 1.28 at full throttle
smoke control 0
Baro 14.53
idle rail pressure 350 - 352
full throttle 530 and fluctuating slightly maybe 10 to 15 lbs
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

is the idle steady?? quantity control valve reading correctly?? not a hunting idle??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Idle is smooth
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

what about the overhead?? has that been done???

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
no but this problem started after a filter change fine one day and dead the next
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

was there any debris in the small fuel filter??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
very little
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
is there pressure regulators that could be stuck open not letting it build pressure?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Are the rail pressures right that i gave you ?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

then it leads me toward injectors.

if the regulator was the issue you would be able to see it bleeding off on the return line. use your red dot heat detector to see if fuel is bleeding off.

the high side is low but if that was an issue, it would have high rpm issue

the low side is just below what it should be and that may be the issue

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I just dont understand how it can be injectors from one start up to the next. could be
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

dirt that came from when you removed the fuel filters. that small filter is the key to debris.

Roy

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
that would cause low power on the bottom side of the rpm range but fine up top?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 3 months ago

yep, irregular fuel pattern or dripping injectors and the ecm is adjusting the fuel map.
